I have a short neck so made them using 11cm of wire and textured it with a cross pein hammer. They are quite heavy but look very impressive. I used metal punches of different sizes for the twirls.

The drops are made with 9cm of wire textured with an impressart stamp. 

I used binding wire to keep the ends together while soldering and that worked well.
